“In most places, culture comes down from on high. But in New Orleans, it bubbles up from the streets,” said Wynton Marsallis, jazz trumpeter.

The second line is a tradition born from the people and streets of New Orleans. It’s what we do when we’re happy, what we do when we’re sad. We do it at will, because in New Orleans we need no occasion to celebrate.
